CASE-ing the Catty Birthday Blooms - #CTC67

This week at CASE-ing the Catty #CTC67 we are featuring the Birthday Bouquet section in the Occasions Catalogue I could not go passed Birthday Blooms stamp set.  I was inspired by the below colours in this bloom.

You may have come from Monique Fielder and don't you just love her card this week.

Again this week I have used Black Stazon to stamp the image and then I have used Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and finally Calypso Coral with a sponge dauber to colour this beautiful flower.  I then used Pear Pizzazz with a tiny touch of Old Olive for the leaves.  I then fussy cut out the bloom close to the image and then with my Black Stampin' Write Marker went around the edge to finish it off.

Stamp Set:  Birthday Blooms
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Gold Foil Sheets, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive
